I barely brushed my teeth the first 16 years I barely brushed them maybe once in a week or less and intill 2 years ago o started brushing daily but I just don’t know if it’s still worth brushing, even after brushing i lost a tooth half a year ago a back one, is there still any point of brushing my teeth still and I haven’t been to a dentist since I was little I just feel my teeth are in a bad shape

Hi Annonymous1298,

well done on starting to brush daily. It looks like there are a lot of teeth still in your mouth and those still need to be kept clean and healthy. That's when brushing daily comes in place :)
May I ask you what happened to the lost tooth? You mentioned you haven't been to the dentist since you were little. Did the tooth fall out on it's own?

All the best wishes

I was 17 at the time it was small and had a tiny bit of black on it, i just worry about my teeth and wonder if it's even worth brushing them

i feel a weird taste in my bottom left of my mouth too but i dont know what that could be

Yes, it is worth brushing them. The best combination would be to brush every day and to see a dentist for a check-up about twice a year. They can then tell you whether everything is ok and might help you to alleviate your worries. How does that sound?

Trying getting into a dentist sounds like a good idea :thumbsup:
Here are two links for you, they might help you to get some orientation about what brushing is for and what is needed to keep your teeth healthy (apart of regular dental check-ups):


Mouth wash is not needed. You can find details in one of the articles.

i also have a feeling one of my teeth are gonna fall out but it looks fine and it's not wobbling and it doesn't hurt is it just on my mind do you think

i also feel a slight bit of weird taste but i think i got it from brushing my gums to hard


also are my teeth bad i feel like there so yellow even though i brush a lot there still just yellow
